Apple strawberry fruit punch recipe

fruit punch in  serving glasses
Apple strawberry fruit punch recipe - It is a perfect time to prepare some cool, really very cool drinks to beat the scorching heat.Today I have prepared this fruit punch with apple, strawberries and milk. I used the fruits available in my refrigerator. I had strawberries and apples. This is a very delicious and filling fruit punch which can be made in a jiffy. In summer, we feel like drinking something cold rather than eating something spicy. In such situation, I just prepare milk shake or fruit juice and we are more than happy to consume it for our breakfast. You can also add other fruits like banana and chikoo while preparing fruit punch.
